3.48/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: small head on a murky brown, muddy body with no lacing really.

S: sweet dark fruits, mostly raisin and fig with some candy sugar and caramel.

T: lightly toasted and caramel malts, cinnamon, dark fruits. comes across and one dimensional and simple, carbonation distracting from the flavors. Little in the way of belgian yeast or other belgian character.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation, with a dry finish. I feel its bordering on too carbonated.

Overall: Not "belgian" enough for me. A little too carbonated and simple. Not a bad beer just not great.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours with one finger of off white foam on top of a hazy, dark brown body. The foam fades at a moderate pace and leaves light lace.

S - Toasty malt and some dark caramel with some peppery yeast.

T - Dry caramel up front with a bit of sweet malt rounding things out in the middle. Some toffee and red apple comes out as the beer finishes up with a bit of licorice and clove lingering on the palate.

M - Medium thick body, moderate carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - This beer has potential, but it doesn't quite get there. It is undercarbonated and too sweet for the style, if those issues were resolved it could be pretty nice.

Got this some time ago for a very reasonable price. Age seems to have mellowed it a fair bit. Maple syrup is there, as an accent. Meshes with a more earthy dubbel. Carbonation is pretty decent; fairly vibrant. A nice drinker. Has definitely held up well.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Beer served in a snifter, beer is brown and hazy with a lazy head of small tan bubbles, no lacing, moderate retention.

Aroma is yeasty, Belgian, sweet.

Beer is a little cloying, a little boozy, a little yeasty. Not the best dubbel by a long shot and I don't get any syrup but not a horrible beer in the long run. Just an average one.

On tap at Max's today.

The beer pours a reddish amber color with some brown hilights. The beer has pretty good head retention and decent lacing, and I get some nice cherry, brown sugar and underlying spice on the nose. The flavor profile replicates the nose in tnis moderately sweet beer, but with some light chocolate and a hint of licorice on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and the finish is fairly long, with some noticeable spice. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and drinkability is pretty good.

A nice enough beer, but I'm just not sure why I'd want to drink this as opposed to the actual version of this style. It really doesn't stand out otherwise (IMHO).

On tap at World of Beer at North Hills

A - brownish caramel; soft, offwhite head; great retention

S - caramel, faintly sweet

T - alcohol up front, caramel, faint fruit, a bit sugary

M - medium bodied, smooth, a bit crisp

This is a decent Dubbel. It has solid flavor and good drinkability. The alcohol is a bit forward but not overwhelming. It's a decent representation of the style and worth trying.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

I had a couple of twelve ounce pours of this at the Amsterdam Ale House in Manhattan's Upper WEst Side. Dubbel's are not my favorite style but as far as they go I liked this one.

Appearance is a dark/medium brown. Light brown head, about a finger's worth and some lacing left behind.

Aroma was of figs/dates. Some dark biscuit.

Flavor was a little on the sweet side but pretty complex overall. Fruit, malt, yeast.

Overall a pretty good dubbel.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A- Cloudy cola colored body with an off-white head that does not leave much lacing.

S- Belgian yeast and spices come through first. There is a sweet nutty hazelnut malt note, maple syrup is noticeable, along with a sweet dried fruit aroma.

T- Sweet and fruity right off the bat. There is a strong raisin taste initially, followed by a medium toasted malt taste and finishes with a sweet maple syrup flavor.

M- Creamy with medium-low carbonation. The finish leaves a sweet residue across the palate.

O- Had this on tap at the brewery and wasn't thrilled, but the bottled version is very good. A lot of complex flavors in an American Dubbel.
